What's New in Version 6.3
We quarantined some bugs that may have gotten between you and your music discovery.
Takes place of iTunes, amazing app
I personally love this app. For me, I use it instead of iTunes and Apple Music. I love discovering new music, especially based on a song I love, which is basically what Pandora does. There are so many different situations that Pandora comes in handy in my house, and I'm so happy I got this app. It's just like the radio, but it's your radio. There's very little ads, and you can have multiple stations. I chose Pandora over iHeartRadio because you create the stations. I personally don't like the radio stations today because the music played on those stations are controlled by other people NOT with your music taste. That's what iHeartRadio plays most of the time. Pandora is unique, if you thumbs up a song it plays more like it. If you thumbs down a song, it won't play it again. Plus, Pandora works better on my phone than iHeartRadio does. On iHeartRadio, if you thumbs down a song it just keeps playing, and on iTunes you can only skip songs, and the song will soon play again. If your looking for today's radio, I would look towards iHeartRadio. If you don't want to download an app, and don't mind what music you listen to within a station, then I would stick with iTunes. But if your like me, and you like a variety of songs that plays a radio based on a song or songs you love only, I would go towards Pandora. This app is unique, and a big part in my music life.
Good music, horrible ads and UI
I absolutely love using Pandora and find that their playlists are quite diverse, but almost always consist of exactly what I'm looking to listen to. For that, Pandora gets 4.5 stars.
The reason for the 2 star rating is in part due to their increase in ads, and not just those that come up when you're listening. The formatting for ads on your screen that now take up almost the entire screen and have the smallest 'x' button is horrible. I'm constantly accidentally clicking on the ads when I try to close them and then get accosted by Pandora asking me to rate them. 😡 Further, of the ads that play during your listening sessions, some of them have evolved to be politically motivated or personally offensive ads (most currently those touching on the Iran Nuclear deal). As such, I feel like there should be a way to report offensive content or dismiss ads that aren't catered towards you. Of course there is little motivation to improve this experience since it should be a motivator for the purchase of a Pandora subscription, but it is nonetheless infuriating that Pandora has been turning into a political targeting platform when I really want to listen to music.
I would be willing to change my rating if Pandora issued some updates addressing the size of the ads on the screen, their increased frequency, and ways to report offensive content.
Being in the hospital, and confined to a bed most the time, I have found great comfort in listening to Kirk Franklin and also the Christafari compositions that are available through Pandora. They have been inspirational, life supporting, and very well worth anyone's time to listen. For anyone aspiring to be the greatest they can be for Jesus Christ our Lord, this is the music you need to support your prayer life and the request to receive even double abundance for all your prayers for all of the needs on this earth. Jesus Christ is still today the living savior on this earth. Go to Him with a wonderful Pandora Gospel in the background, and you will not be discouraged or dissatisfied. Jesus picks out the exact song you need to hear as you start your prayer time. His selection, His timing, and everything about what He brings to you during that timeframe will be absolutely perfect in his divine will. Pray from the heart and pray hard that you are able to do throughout the day the Lord's will through your words, actions and thoughts. Bring another life to Jesus Christ in your walk with him today!! All glory goes to God!
